At Building Transformation, we do things differently. We do them right.

Full external building restoration solutions

Stone, concrete, cladding, brick or render, we provide the right solution for your building. With each elevation receiving a customised treatment that suits its geography and environment, no matter where you are, we have a tailored solution for your building and budget.

Surveyors, local authorities, building owners and managers regularly work with us to help create bespoke façade refurbishment solutions. We understand that facade cleaning and building restoration projects often need to take place while the building is in full use. We use the most appropriate access solution to suit your needs, installing scaffolding, using abseiling and rope access or MEWPS to manage our projects safely.

Every project has its own unique façade cleaning plan, stone repair match (both in colour and texture), and repointing solution (whether that be flush, weather struck, recessed or a bucket handle finish). Where required, we work within listed building and conservation guidelines to provide you with a building refurbishment solution that you can be proud of.

Our specialist facade refurbishment solutions include:

  • Full building cleaning, façade repair and protective coatings
  • Specialist access solutions: Abseiling, cradles, tower hoist, MEWPS and scaffolding
  • Masonry, concrete and façade repairs
  • Structural masonry ties and façade stabilisation

Specialist Consultancy Solutions

  • Specialist façade cleaning test trials and method specifications.
  • Façade surveys, reporting, access and programme plans.
  • Façade condition and performance surveys.

Surveyors, local authorities, building owners and managers all enlist us to help create a bespoke façade refurbishment solution.

Listed buildings and period properties are constructed using a wide range of materials, often locally sourced which need to be matched during the restoration. Beautifully designed and intelligently engineered buildings and the general external building fabric can be left for hundreds of years with little or no maintenance, leaving materials to weather and decay. We use low pressure steam cleaning methods for soft soiling matter and combine it with a range of other specialist cleaning methods such as TORC (aggregate based methods, poultice, nebulous and chemicals are used in a targeted manner to help soften certain forms of pollution). We use traditional methods to restore, preserve and maintain historic buildings for many years to come.


Testimonials

Building Transformation’s unquestionable honesty and enthusiasm for ensuring the client receives the correct whole-life solution (rather than a quick fix) resulted in us being able to ensure the building was not only returned to its former glory, but will stay that way for years to come. I would recommend them to anyone.

Kenny Gash - Carillion Amey

The work provided by Building Transformation was excellent. Their product and building exteriors knowledge is detailed, comprehensive and practically applied to the client’s needs. They offer a professional, detailed, high-quality and customer- focused service which meets the short, medium and long-term needs of the client, and provides practical, cost-realistic advice.

Kerry Quinn - Echo Arena

Customer service is paramount to Building Transformation and they invested vast amounts of time in providing me with a programme to facilitate what was a very complex and time-specific programme of work for the site. The quality and level of support provided by Building Transformation is priceless to any client/contractor.

Marc Blow MCIOB MBIFM - Carillion Amey

The approach and advice on setting up the works at the Wolverhampton Civic Centre were first-class. Building Transformation’s attention to detail was excellent and the RAMS were followed meticulously to every detail. We were delighted with the works and service, and would not hesitate to use them again, nor hesitate to recommend them to any organisation.

Kevin Egginton - Wolverhampton Council

A 200,000 sq. ft., four-storey leisure venue in the heart of Nottingham city centre surrounded by major traffic routes needed work to be done overnight to deal with the traffic issues, while the site remained open throughout. The project took around three weeks to complete and went exceptionally well; the Building Transformation staff were flexible and able to work round dynamic operational issues. The clean was of a high standard and has made a significant different to the image of the building. A very difficult job done well.

Suzanne Green - Land Securities

May & Co have worked with Building Transformation on a number of projects which have included external building cleaning and refurbishment. They provided a great service, supported by the high level of documentation from the initial quotation to books and industry-related guidance, all relevant to our project.

Anton Theobald - May & Co

I am very satisfied in the manner the job was conducted. Also the level of cleaning provided and attention to detail is much appreciated.

Waqas Bin Tahir - Ibis Southampton

I am using Building Transformation’s work to help justify façade restoration works around our business.  They have produced excellent presentations on what can be achieved and is a brilliant piece of informed marketing that is helping slowly win people over in our business to take façade cleaning and restoration more seriously.

Needless to say Building Transformation is a name that is now becoming known and respected.

Simon Attwood - Broadgate Estates Ltd.

Building Transformation gave great communication throughout our projects.
It will be my pleasure to recommend Building Transformation.

Sarah Cameron - My Hotels Group

Just signed off the job with Richard. Myself, the bosses and the tenant all are very pleased with the work. It definitely looks rejuvenated just a case of painting the concrete window surrounds in the new year to finish it off. Have found your company and staff very professional and helpful which has facilitated a project with minimal inconvenience and disruption to our in situ tenants.

Mark Hollinshead - Headruddy Property Development

I had a walk around today with Dave and am impressed with the work so far.  Dave and the team have done a great job.

I’d certainly love to work with you in the future so perhaps before the job is completed we could look at what opportunities there are for the future.

Marie Green - Novotel Sheffield

At this stage, from my point of view your team has been extremely professional, informing us of what was happening at all times and most importantly no disruption whatsoever to our guests and business.

Ludovic Verzi - Novotel Leeds

We are very satisfied in the manner the job was conducted. The operatives on site were very professional and communicated to us at all times.

Maria Pinana Mateu - Science Museum

The team at Building Transformation understood our challenge of finding a facade cleaning solution that would initially restore the glazing to its original state, protecting our building for years to come. Through intelligent and thorough testing right through to the full restoration of Block D, we have been very satisfied with the project management and delivery of the cleaning programme.

Colin Pilkington - Renaker Build Limited

Thank you for all the work that you carried out in cleaning the outside of our school.  We are delighted with the results.  You have managed to completely remove heavy staining from many areas around the building.

We found you extremely easy to work with: your quote was reasonable, you carried out the work quickly and you were very flexible in terms of timings.

Tamsin Griffith - Courtney Road Primary School, Bristol

We will definitely be working with you again! Your engineers were very polite and accommodating every time they visited site and have done a first class job. I will be recommending Building Transformation to everyone!

Our Philosophy

21st Century Façades: Breathing Life into Urban Landscapes

The urban environment has changed enormously since the majority of building maintenance concerns were focused on more traditional masonry structures, materials, pollution levels, weather patterns – even the height of most buildings are completely different to a hundred years ago. This book illustrates how Building Transformation’s methods breathe new life, energy and vitality into building skins and cities.
